In support of the recommendations in Resilient Children, Resilient Loudoun, THE LOUDOUN COUNTY PARTNERSHIP FOR RESILIENT CHILDREN & FAMILIES is proud to bring Jim Harris, MSW, Ed.D. for a special presenation for service providers.
The Adolescent Brain: Understanding the “What” & “Why” with Jim Harris, MSW, Ed.D.
In this session Jim will take you on a journey into the adolescent brain. I know, it sounds pretty scary! However, with this improved understanding you will learn how to take into consideration the developmental status of the adolescent brain in developing programming and interventions. Jim will pay specific attention to developmental progression and how it relates to different behavioral manifestations. He will use case examples and common issues in adolescent interventions to bring “real world” relevance to the information.
